Praise the Lord, My Visa arrived! Yay! I've had a great time with my parents, sisters, nieces and nephews, brother-in-laws, and church family, too. God has been so good to give me this time. But, even though saying Good-bye is never fun, being with Patrick, Josh, and Brenna is my heart's desire. My parents always taught me that once I'm married and out of the house I will always be welcome...for a visit :o) My place is with my husband and children. I'm thankful that they've instilled within me a sense of knowing my place. I heard my niece, Emily, telling a friend today that "Grandma and Grandpa's house is like a gathering place, we all just end up here!" It's so true, and I've had so much time living daily life with all my family
In the morning Elisabeth, Silas, Callie and I will leave for Miami at 5:30. Yikes, that's early! We should arrive in St. Barths by tomorrow night around 7:30. Long day, but definitely worth it! Please pray for safe travels for us, but most of all, Thank the Lord for working out all the details for us. He's so good to us!
